We are committed to working alongside Indigenous communities and undertaking our responsibility in implementing TRC Call to Action #92 into our corporate policy and core operational activities.

 

Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada Calls to Action

We commit to taking action towards reconciliation by:

  • Ensuring that Indigenous peoples have equitable access to jobs, training, and education opportunities at ORPC Canada.
  • Supporting ongoing education and training of owners and staff in the history and culture of Indigenous peoples in Canada.
  • Ensuring that non-Indigenous partners undertake proper and respectful consultation with First Nations in the course of project development.
  • Working to optimize First Nations’ project training and employment opportunities, and to develop human resources capacity for First Nations communities.
  • Respectfully engaging with non-Indigenous Canadians to encourage them to learn about and participate in reconciliation.
